AWSM kicks off September with discounted professional membership offer

Post by:
AWSM Board

We've got an AWSM offer for you! The Association for Women in Sports Media (AWSM) is giving new or renewing professional members a 10% discount off their annual membership fee during the month of September. Visit to take advantage of this discount.

Those who join or renew during our September membership drive gain access to our upcoming exclusive digital conversation with seven-time Olympic gold medalist Katie Ledecky on Tuesday, Sept. 12, at 7 p.m. Eastern Time (6 p.m. Central Time and 4 p.m. Pacific Time).

AWSM is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1987 as a support network and advocacy group for women who work in all levels of sports media.

Membership is available to those of all genders working at the student and professional levels of sports media, along with those who have retired or left the industry.

In addition to digital and in person guest speakers and networking events, AWSM provides student scholarships (AWSM Scholars), a robust job board, mid-career mentor programs (AWSM Champions), an annual convention and more.

AWSM needs you now more than ever. We have continued to offer support services for our student and professional members along with hiring managers recruiting talented women for jobs in sports media, but we have been hit hard by the pandemic and ensuing economic downturn. Every membership registration and renewal helps us continue to provide essential services.

Visit to join at rates of $25 for students and $45 for professionals during our September membership drive. Despite being one of the lower priced professional journalism organizations, we have not raised rates in years because we are concerned about the financial challenges our current and prospective members are facing.  

Please email if you have any issues registering or renewing during our membership drive. No codes or passwords are required to register at the discounted rate during our September drive.
